Sit Back with a Tall, Cold Beer: Learn How Microsoft Dynamics GP Revolutionized Craft Brewing
So-called craft beers have taken our nation by storm! In the 2-year period between 2013 and 2015, the number of craft breweries in the United States grew from approximately 2,300 to more than 4,000, accounting for 7.8% of the U.S. beer market. Craft beer lovers see plenty of room for growth.
There is also an evolving and sometimes confusing or overlapping lexicon surrounding the beer industry, with often blurred distinctions among terms such as nano breweries, microbreweries, craft breweries, farm breweries.
But one thing they all have in common is the need for an ERP software solution that addresses the unique operational processes and financial accounting needs of these relatively smaller breweries.
Enter Microsoft Dynamics GP, one of the most venerated accounting and ERP systems in the software industry, with roots dating back to the early 1980s when it was called Great Plains Software. Fast forward to the 21st century and Tidestone Solutions who offers a brewery-specific ERP software solution that automates business processes to cut costs and increase efficiencies.
Tidestone’s Message to Craft Brewers
Maybe QuickBooks could do the job when you first opened your brewery. But if you’re like most craft brewers today, your business is growing. Even booming. Now, QuickBooks is no longer up to the task. Now, you have to work hard to manipulate the software and figure out workarounds. It’s a drain on your finance and IT resources. Your costs are increasing. Your efficiencies are decreasing, just when you need them most.
This situation is not sustainable.
Tidestone allows you to focus on what you do best … brewing great craft beer!
